the passing of time

dress: forever21 // purse: target // bangles: gift // necklace + ring: love culture

Amory took to writing poetry on spring afternoons, in the gardens on the big estates near Princeton, while swans made effective atmosphere in the artificial pools, and slow clouds sailed harmoniously above the willow. May came too soon, and suddenly unable to bear walls, he wandered the campus at all hours through starlight and rain. 
-- F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise

How apt a description for the season -- suddenly unable to bear walls.  I don't know where to pin it, so I'll do as I'm accustomed, and pin it on the passing of time: it seems the older I get the more I love the springtime. Each flower a masterpiece, each birdsong a symphony. Cool mornings that turn warm, green grass, buckets of rain, a breath between winter and summer. Every year I long for April a little more than the year before.

    1. definitely a great facade -- mentally cataloged it for some future engagement shoots myself. ; ) i don't remember the exact cross streets...but somewhere around 17th and Park Ave. It's very close to the Dazbog on 17th (off of Park Ave) if that helps! : ) happy shooting!

  11. I love Spring, too. It's almost unbearably cold where I live in the winter (ND), so Spring brings a lovely and welcomed respite from the brutality that is that season in this part of the country. Spring brings to mind feelings of renewed hope - everything is starting fresh, a new chance at life. It's such a wonderful feeling to be able to bear witness to that transformation.

    These pictures are so lovely, as always. And I absolutely adored the Fitzgerald quote that you included.
